In The Loss of the Creature by Walker Percy a theory is stated. The theory emphasizes that being the first to discover something holds much more value because no one else has yet discovered it. The theory continues to state if one is first to discover something they are experiencing the “whole value” whereas when one is experiencing something a million people have seen before they are only experiencing 1/1,000,000 of the total value. Do you agree with these statements? Why, or why not? Has anyone experienced events similar to what Walker Percy is referencing in the essay?
